Development Co-operation Directorate, Director’s Office, 23 November 2012
In November 2012 the Director of the OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC), released the interim report on Germany’s progress since the OECD/DAC Peer Review in 2010. The examiners come to the conclusion that Germany has made significant progress in the last two years with regard to implementing the recommendations from the last Peer Review. The merger that created the GIZ is expressly described as a success. Germany now has an effective implementing organisation for Technical Cooperation. The examiners encouraged the German government to continue with the reforms that have been started and to give even more weight to Germany’s international development policy.
